Cabin

#fowc #cabin

14th March 2020

Carefully crafted, from trees that now surround it

a place to get away from the strains of modern life

blessed with a wonderful view of the lakes and streams

in sight of nearby provisions, a short ride away

not forgetting some wonderful animals

4th March 2020

Artwork by Inky : Fish created for the inkwell at the toolshed.

Sinking my toes into deep sand

while the fish swim around my legs

i look like a colossus to the

many under water – as my feet

make their way through the waves

its only when i stop – to take a look at the horizon do they

nibble at the soles underneath

great – a free pedicure

Advent

As far as I know it, the countdown to Christmas day has begun

December starts tomorrow morning, when

Vergers and other officers of the church will be

Engaging with the parishioners about the upcoming

Nativity celebrations

Taking place in the cathedral on Christmas Eve

Holiday time

16th November 2019

Heavens above! is it Christmas already ?

Of course not….there’s five more weeks till then, but

Look around you and you’ll already see

Instant signs the festive season is almost here

Decorations, presents and Festive Food

All over the place, and yet – when Boxing Day gets here

You’ll all be talking about your two weeks in the sun

Prudent

#Fowc #Prudent

Paying attention to the pennies should

Really be a priority throughout the year

Unless you treat every day like Christmas

Destination’s for holidays could be a little closer,

Even after extravagant spending, the piggybank deciding

Nearer to home than the equator

This year – the Bahamas , Next year ? Bournemouth

Out to sea

The Shipwreck cove (Navagio) : taken from a boat off Zakynthos coast

#Octpowrimo #Ocean #Sea

Sat on a boat in the Sunshine

enjoying the ocean blues

as the sealife swims alongside

Shoals of

excitable marine life

are following the line of the boat

Slicing through the waves

each passenger lifts up slightly

as the boat goes up a touch

Nude

Salford (via Zakynthos) , 2019

#fowc #nude #memory

Notable that moment , you were caught

Unawares – towels adrift and

Dressing gown cast on the floor

Expressionist – on the beach – perhaps – but in the flat – shut the door!

Summer Break

Sitting in the garden

Playing with a ball

As Mum or dad

Call out – from beyond the hall

Excitement awaits – we’re off to the museums!

Down goes your head – you don’t want to see ’em

Of course, its not like you’re grateful – you’ve been there before

Up with your classmates – till gone half past four

The holidays are for fun – out in the fresh air!

! You’ll be going somewhere sunny soon – but you don’t care! !

A walk across the sands

#Holiday #Memories

An Impromptu decision

walking across the sands

on the way to dinner

Part of the sands

deep, fast running

and trapped tween the grooves

Another , lapped by the sea

deserted, but for footprints

left by the shoes

Trailing, then disappearing

the route almost visible

on the way to a fish salad

Countdown to the beach

#freedomofexpression #iscriblr #countdown #creativity #beach

Countdown to the beach – (p) 2019 Brian F Kirkham

Soon it will be summer,

Under the shade we will be

Making sandcastles on the shore

Moments away from the sea

Expect a visit from a fish or two

Reacting as you dip your toes in the waters
